2019: The Final Ride

Prizes and Winners

Rob W. - Grand Prize Winner

GRAND PRIZE (Best Poker Hand): (Flush - Spades) - "Congratulations, Pedaler! What started as a random collection of cards has earned you a spot in Pumpkin Pedaler history! Your prize package, valued at over $600, includes "Gotta Catch Me First," a mixed-media art piece from Columbus's own Daric Gill and a Core-Line Bicycle from the State Bicycle Company, like the aptly named Blue Jay model. You will also be enshrined forever in the Pumpkin Pedaler History pages, an honor that is priceless." For those that didn't hear, Rob drew four spades in a row to complete his flush - the first three were cards already in his hand. We can't remember a more exciting finish!

Dawn N. - Worst Poker Hand

Worst Poker Hand: (9-7-6-4-3) "We've calculated the results, and they are not good. That random assortment of cards you've managed to collect over the course of fourteen miles is... a random assortment of cards. Fear not, Pedaler! Our friends at CD102.5 would like to invite you to one of their shows - and you get to choose! In addition, you will receive a black pumpkin bucket full of M&Ms and other candies. And the fine folks at Griffen Hollow Studio have a treat for you - a custom trophy that will make all the other Pedalers green with envy (actually, there's a lot of riders dressed as witches so they may just be green with makeup)!"

Saul I. - Best Costume

Best Costume: (Mermaid Man) "New for 2019, this prize goes to the Pedaler who puts together the most original - but safe for the ride - costume! The Best Costume winner will receive an orange pumpkin bucket filled with Reese Peanut Butter Eggs, other candies, and a $25 Target Gift card to perfect your costume in time for Halloween. Our friends at Griffen Hollow Studio provided a custom trophy for the winner to take home a treasure forever!"
